Reasons I Hate Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Humor

Introduction:I was first diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) when I was pregnant. Irritable bowel syndrome and pregnancy - what a mix! I later found out I suffered from severe irritable bowel syndrome. I never do anything half way. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia - the gifts the keep on giving. Since the beginning, I've been racking up all the reasons I hate IBS.

  • 01

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms

    Since my Irritable Bowel Syndrome diagnosis, I've noticed all sorts of not-so-wonderful Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms that makes me hate it. I can't figure out which is worse; the Irritable Bowel Syndrome constipation is painful and the Irritable Bowel Syndrome diarrhea is inconvenient and embarrassing. Of course, my life is ever so joyful when they occur at the same time. Believe it or not, it is possible to suffer from both of those symptoms at the same time. Stomach cramps are not very pleasant either. Oh, my daily life.

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome Diet

    The Irritable Bowel Syndrome diet is not how I want to spend my life eating and I hate it. None of my favorite foods seems to be included. The Irritable Bowel Syndrome recipes lack taste. A friend suggested I try natural remedies for my Irritable Bowel Syndrome. You know herbs for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and the like. I added several herbs to my diet. Wouldn't you know it? Not a single Irritable Bowel Syndrome herbal remedy worked. I even added probiotics. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, for me, wasn't helped by all that "good bacteria."

  • 03

    Toilet Tissue Shortages

    The toilet tissue shortages are another reason I hate Irritable Bowel Syndrome. You can't imagine how much we spend on "TP" every week. Even with all the coupons and hitting all the sales, it seems like we spend more on toilet tissue than groceries and gas. We buy in bulk. Isn't that lovely? I feel like the only person who buys 100 rolls of toilet paper each week. Sometimes more. Usually more. Of course, our water bill is outrageously high, but that is a completely different story.

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome Medication

    I can't stand the drugs for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Yet another reason I hate IBS. If I wanted to take horse pills, I'd go to a vet! The Irritable Bowel Syndrome remedies are almost as bad as the disease itself. Every Irritable Bowel Syndrome medicine I took upset my stomach. Let's just say if it isn't one end, it is another. I live without Irritable Bowel Syndrome relief so I can laugh about it. Despite my sarcasm and lack of luck, I'm sure I will find an Irritable Bowel Syndrome treatment that will work.

  • 05

    Adult Diapers

    I practically gave up treating my Irritable Bowel Syndrome when my husband brought home the adult diapers. Adult diapers - my list of reasons for hating IBS keeps growing. Yes, it is that bad enough I need them. Explaining to my daughter, who finally got rid of her "night night panties," why I had to have them was almost too much for me. Thankfully, you can buy adult diapers online. Saves me the embarrassment at the store. However, finding a brand that worked for me was difficult. "Tranquilty," "Prevail," "Depends," "Molicare" and "Tena" are just a few brands I tried.




Final Thoughts

I know there are worse things out there than Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I'm thankful it isn't something worse. I'm certainly thankful my daughter doesn't have it. Yes, Irritable Bowel Syndrome in children is relatively common. I haven't given up hope. I know that somewhere there is some form of Irritable Bowel Syndrome help available. Laughing about it seems to help. Well, I tell myself it helps. Seeing I spend a large portion of my day in the bathroom, I might as well laugh while I am in there.
